    Re: IB or sealed?

    for an ib you just need to seal the trunk from the cabin so only the front fires into the cabin and the rear is sealed off..

    Re: IB or sealed?

    ok cool thats what i thought but i dont like to act like i know what im talkin bout. could i get that to sound as good and hit as hard that way or am i better off with the 12 sealed.oh and the 10 would have to be kinda shallow cause toyota put the gas tank right under the package trey and anything deep i think would hit

    Re: IB or sealed?

    I can't say honestly.. I think it has less output but has better range if im not mistaken.. It depends on what you want more.. sq or spl..

    Re: IB or sealed?

    "Loud" is achievable with IB. But one 10 probably won't satisfy most people's definition of "loud". I went to a DIYMA meet and heard a Protege with 2 15" SS RL-p's IB off 600w and it was loudddd when he turned them up, but for normal use they sounded amazing. They blended with the mids so nicely and sounded so "natural". The bass didn't "hit" you as hard as an enclosed set up. It was much softer and again natural feeling. It didn't feel like a speaker was reproducing music; it sounded like you were listening to non-amplified music live. And that was what made me want to go IB. I've wanted to do it with my 1 12 but I'm afraid it won't have enough output for me. So I think I'm going to sell it and go IB with my 4 E8s. In your car I think 1 10 in your factory spot IB would be interesting for a daily SQ car...but what confuses me is if your subs are mounted IB on the package tray, do you still need to seal off the space behind the seats with a panel?

    If your definition of "loud" is being clearly able to tell you have a sub, then IB is not for you. The way LaserRed put it is very true - with a proper IB installation, you might not be able to tell you have a sub installed, until you turn it off - and that's the point

    Re: IB or sealed?

    You do not need to seal off the section between the cabin and the trunk...it helps....Scott Buwalda's Altima had 3 12's firing through the rear deck and he did not use a baffle between the rear seats and the trunk....He did pretty good in competitions.

    When a speaker is placed IB it raises the efficiency of the speaker so less power is needed to produce the same SPL....

    BUT...power handling is lowered....


    the low end of an IB set up is unmatched....IMO

    Re: IB or sealed?

    thinkin bout a id10v3....you guys think thats a good option? but my main question...with IB would i have to seal up the holes for the other 6.5s in the package trey or could i use some rear fill.i know i cant leave them open but would the speakers them selves affect it being true IB.
